Currently Being ModeratedAug 15, 2009 4:14 AM (in response to jfwells)i would expect the content on the DVR to be encrypted so that it only can play via the PVR (much like the satellite PVRs in the UK).
even if you could get the content off the DVR it would most likely not play.
you would probably need to play the recording from the DVR and record it again using a video input device connected to a pc/mac (the Eglato on a mac for example). probably not an ideal solution, but workable at least.
